And they’re off! As we view from the comfort of home.
The Travers race is scheduled for August 8th, 2020 and is considered the Saratoga Midsummer Derby that spectators come from near and far to watch. The first Travers race was held in 1864, and was named after William R. Travers after his horse, Kentucky, won that very first race! The distance ran is now 1 1/4 mile which is perfect for the 3 year old colts, geldings and fillies running.
Winners receive a gold plated replica of the original Travers Trophy, the Man O’ War Cup, designed by Tiffany and Co. They also receive a locally handmade floral blanket with thousands of beautiful carnations, and a canoe painted in the silk colors of the winner of the race.
